[laughter] sorry about that. i couldn't resist, i mean, i was a marine. he didn't know how he was going to run five miles. after all, the air force probably hadn't made him do that befo. [laughter] he certainly didn't know how he was going to do that pushing his son in a wheelchair. but he did finish. in fact, he finished next to last. and for an hour after the race, he lay on the floor gasping. he had no idea how he had managed to finish, and he was sure that his short and unhappy racing career was over. but during that hour his son rick typed out a message with his head. that was the only body part he could move. took him an hour to type it, and here's what he typed. dad, when i am running, i feel like i'm not even handicapped. and since that time dick and ri
